• of process centers for screening, clearance and

Referred — Establishment of Public Building Com- 
mission of Chicago and Authorization to 
Mayor for Necessary Action to 
Perfect Commission. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, submitted the 
following proposed resolution, which was Referred to 
the Committee on Planning and Housing: 

Whereas, The City of Chicago, being the county 
seat of Cook County, Illinois, has become the sec- 
ond largest city in the nation; and 

Whereas, The increased activities on the part 
of both the citizen and his local government have 
created an urgent need for modern public build- 
ings and facilities so that government services 
can be conducted efficiently and economically; and 

Whereas, Many of the present public buildings 
now used to service the people are outgrown, out- 
moded and greatly overcrowded; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago, to meet the needs 
of a growing population, has been compelled to 
expend large sums of money annually in the rental, 
operation and maintenance of additional building 
space to house the various branches, departments 
and divisions of government; and 

Whereas, The dispersement of the departments 
and agencies of government causes confusion and 
considerable waste of time and effort for citizens 
doing business with government; and 

Whereas, Many public records, wills, convey- 
ances vital statistics, court decrees, and other 
similar documents in use in the conduct of daily 
business are now filed in poorly protected and 
overcrowded' spaces, and in widely separated loca- 
tions because of the lack of adequate public build- 
ings; and 

Whereas, The cause of good government will be 
served if modern buildings, centrally located, were

constructed for the various governmental agencies 
of the City of Chicago; 

Therefore, Be It Resolved, That there is need 
and it is in the best interest of the public that a 
Public Building Commission be organized to exer- 
cise the powers and authority prescribed by "An 
Act to authorize the creation of Pubhc Building 
Commissions and to define their rights, powers, 
and duties," enacted by the 69th General Assembly 
of the State of Illinois, and there is hereby created 
the "Public Building Commission of Chicago." The 
Mayor shall within ten (10) days after the date 
of the adoption of this Resolution cause a copy of 
the Resolution to be published once in a daily 
newspaper published in the City of Chicago, being 
the county seat of Cook County, Illinois. The Mayor 
is authorized to take all other necessary action as 
provided by law in order to perfect said Commis- 
sion.

sibilities upon local public agencies availing them- 
selves of such financial assistance, including among 
other things; (1) the approval of the urban re- 
newal plan (including any redevelopment plan 
constituting a part thereof) for the urban re- 
newal area by the governing body of the locality 
in which the project is situated, with appropriate 
findings (a) that financial aid by the Federal

with the undertaking and carrying out of urban 
renewal projects; and

-in-aid in connection with the project which to- 
gether with the local grants-in-aid to be provided

involved in such projects; and 

Whereas, Such local grants-in-aid may be pro- 
vided by a state, municipality or other public body, 
or (in the case of cash grants or donations of 
land or other real property) by any other entity, 
and may consist of cash, land or other real prop- 
erty, demolition or removal work, and streets, 
utilities, parks, playgrounds, public buildings, pub- 
lic facilities and other improvements, necessary 
for carrying out in the area the urban renewal 
objectives in accordance with the urban renewal 
plan; and 

Whereas, A general plan has been prepared and 
is recognized and used as a guide for the general 
development of the City of Chicago as a whole;

September 13, 1955. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Traffic and Public Safety of 
the City Council, City of Chicago: 

Re: Northwest Expressway 

Gentlemen — I am forwarding herewith for your 
consideration an ordinance which provides for a 
revision in the alignment of the Northwest Route 
of the Comprehensive Superhighway System be- 
tween W. Huron Street and W. Armitage Avenue. 

The present ordinance for this Route provides 
for this section of the highway to be built on an 
elevated structure along N. EHston Avenue from 
W. Chicago Avenue to W. Bloomingdale Avenue, 
with railroad crossings at W. Chestnut Street and 
at W. Bloomingdale Avenue.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



October 5, 1955 



In attempting to design the highway for the 
present ordinance line, we have encountered such 
difficulties as two railroad crossings, building part 
of the highway in the North Branch of the Chi- 
cago River and constructing new docks, being too 
close to a large gas plant of the Peoples Gas Com- 
pany, getting ramp connection to a high structure 
and excessive cost. 

The proposed ordinance changes submitted here- 
with provide for a depressed highway along the 
west side of the C. & N.W. Ry., which eliminates 
the difficulties ennumerated for the other route 
along Elston Avenue. 

The savings in right of way and construction 
• costs is estimated to be $5,000,000.00 although 
this revised plan provides for the relocation of 
the C. & N.W. Ry. from W. Division Street to W. 
North Avenue at an estimated cost of $2,000,000.- 
00. The relocation of the railroad is provided so 
that the St. Stanislaus Kostka Church at W. Pot- 
omac Avenue and N. Noble Street may be pre- 
served as a historic landmark in this area. The 
cost of the relocation of the railroad is less than 
the cost of taking the Church properties. 

The State of Illinois, Division of Highways, had 
requested that this relocation to the west side of 
the railroad be made because of the excessive 
costs if built on Elston Avenue and they are in 
accord with us in regard to this revised plan. The 
State is providing the funds for acquisition of 
right of way in this area. 

This proposed revision has the approval of the 
Design Committee, composed of representatives 
of the Engineering Departments of the City, Coun- 
ty of Cook, and State of Illinois, Division of High- 
ways. 

I recommend this ordinance for your approval 
and recommend action to the City Council. 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) George DeMent, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

Chief Engineer.

3. ZONING ORDINANCE AMENDMENTS. 



Referred — Proposed Comprehensive Amendment 
TO Chicago Zoning Ordinance. 

Alderman Pacini (10th Ward) presented a proposed 
comprehensive amendment to the Chicago Zoning 
Ordinance; which was Referred to the Committee on 
Buildings and Zoning. 



Statement by Alderman Pacini. 

In connection with the foregoing proposed com- 
prehensive amendment to the Chicago Zoning Ordi- 
nance Alderman Pacini made the following state- 
ment to the Council: 

Mr. President and Members of the Council — It is 
with profound satisfaction that I have the honor 
to present to you today the proposed comprehen- 
sive amendment to the Chicago Zoning Ordinance 
on which the rezoning staff of our committee has 
been diligently at work for a long time. This 



proposed amendment is in reality a brand new 
ordinance designed to replace our present anti- 
quated and inadequate zoning law with the finest 
and most up-to-date zoning code in the country. 
Its adoption by the City Council will do more to 
protect property values and promote neighbor- 
hood conservation than any other measure passed 
by the Council in Chicago's long history. 

The amendment before you represents not only 
the work of the best zoning staff and consultants 
available but also is the result of weeks of meet- 
ings and conferences with all of the major civic, 
technical, and professional groups in the city who 
have given most generously of their time and ad- 
vice in order that a zoning code worthy of our 
great city might be produced. To all of these peo- 
ple I wish to express my sincere thanks and appre- 
ciation. 

The proposed amendment contains a number of 
new innovations based on intensive study of con- 
ditions in Chicago. Where zoning in the past has 
concentrated chiefly on protection of residential 
areas against the influx of business and manufac-

taring uses, the proposed code would protect all 
areas alike — residential, business, commercial, and 
manufacturing— since all four are equally impor- 
tant and essential to our civic life and economy. 

While it is not my purpose to discourse at great 
length on the contents of this proposed amend- 
ment at this time, I would like to outline for you 
briefly the main purposes or objectives which we 
have had in mind in rezoning the city and which 
we believe will be accomplished by adoption of this 
new zoning code: 

1. Every effort has been made to zone or re- 
zone properties in such a way as to reflect 
their best use and so conserve and enhance 
their value. 

2. Major steps have been taken to prevent con- 
gestion of both pubHc streets and all other 
municipal services by limiting the size of 
buildings in all districts as well as by plac- 
ing a ceiling on the number of families 
housed per acre of land in each proposed 
residence district. 

3. Each major class of land use — residential, 
business, commercial and manufacturing — 
has been afforded maximum protection in 
the proposed zoning districts from infiltra- 
tion by incompatible uses which would eith- 
er create a nuisance or, at best, take up val- 
uable land and floor space needed by the 
major use in question. 

4. Higher standards for light, air and open 
space are proposed for areas in which peo- 
ple live and work. 

5. Improved requirements for off-street park- 
ing and loading would still further relieve 
traffic congestion in our streets. 



6. Scientific control of industrial nuisances in 
our manufacturing districts would provide 
new protection to residential and business 
areas as well as to manufacturers desirous 
of building the attractive nuisance-free 
plants characteristic of so much of modern 
industry. 

7. New provisions for administering the zon- 
ing ordinance, with the help of a new De- 
partment of Zoning Administration, would 
greatly improve the efficiency and quality 
of zoning administration in Chicago. 

8. Stricter controls over non-conforming uses 
and their amortization or condemnation are 
proposed in the new amendment, thus ad- 
ding a powerful weapon to the fight which 
so many of our citizens are waging to pro- 
mote neighborhood conservation and pre- 
vent blight and slums. 

9. Strict limitations on the conversion of large 
apartment units into numbers of smaller 
units are proposed, thereby again helping 
neighborhood conservation and stopping 
blight. 

These are only some of the things which we ex- 
pect the new amendment to accomplish for our 
great city. In the report which we have prepared 
for you are summarized all of the basic proposals 
contained in the new code and I urge you to read 
and study this report as a basis for further re- 
view of the actual text and maps. I am confident 
that a study of this material will convince you, 
as I am convinced, that we have before us here a 
document which, if adopted, will prove to be a 
milestone in Chicago's history and will protect and 
strengthen property values and also the municipal 
tax base to an extent heretofore undreamed of.

REPORTS AND COMMUNICATIONS FROM CITY OFFICERS. 



Proposed Tax on Utilities. 

Honorable Richard J. Daley, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the three proposed ordinances transmitted therewith, 
Referred to the Committee on Finance: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

October 14, 1955. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

I am transmitting herewith three ordinances au- 
thorizing a tax on utilities. 

The ordinances providing for a gross receipt tax 
on utilities was part of the program which the 
Legislature approved in order that Chicago may 
have the funds necessary to supply essential serv- 
ices to its people. 

These are the services and functions that the 
city must have if its citizens are to receive ade- 
quate police protection; live under decent health 
standards; and maintain minimum standards in 
their neighborhoods. 

The money received from the utilities tax would 
be used to meet the needs for the Police and Fire 
Departments; for minimum standards of garbage 
collection and disposal; for maintaining clean 
streets ; for proper maintenance of the street light- 
ing system ; for playground supervision and main- 
tenance; for proper maintenance of public build- 
ings; for street repairs; for neighborhood conser- 
vation; and for a sound traffic engineering plan. 

The ordinances follow the recommendations of 
the Chicago Home Rule Commission to broaden 
the base of revenue authority. 

As in the case of the half-cent sales tax, all of 
the revenues derived from the tax on utilities will 
be expended only for essential city services. 
Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Richard J. Daley, 

Mayor.
